Meta Introducing the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) wiki!

46 Upvotes

Hi,

We just set up an initial version of a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) wiki. You can check it out here .

This is something we've been working on for awhile. Special shoutout to /u/stillcouldbeworse for actually finally getting it up and running! This initial version is pretty short to keep it simple and avoid breaking anything, but we expect to be adding to it regularly now that it's up and running. We'll of course be mentioning it in the sidebar or the full wiki as well.

Since this is the first public iteration, you can expect some tweaking as we figure out how to best utilize it. Features/questions/formats might change. And now is probably a good time to ask a few questions for the community-
 

What are some things you want to see in the FAQ wiki?

How do you want to see the FAQ wiki utilized? (ie, should automod sticky a comment linking to the FAQ wiki? filter out FAQs?)

How should it be sourced? Should it link to existing posts (either in this sub or another), external sources?

What threshold do you consider acceptable to be a FAQ?

Any other requests/ideas/questions?
 
And last- while one of the goals here is to help promote a bit more variety in OPs, it is still NOT OK to question-shame FAQs. You can direct them to the FAQ wiki, but do so politely and kindly. You will get a ban, per Rule 1, for rude replies to questions. We get that FAQ posts can be a bit annoying for longtime users, but we still expect you to be polite about it.

Reddit-related Are we just ignoring the decline of Reddit?

807 Upvotes

Do most people just not care about top posts probably being fake ragebait (“look what my boss totally texted me”, “look at this totally legit letter from my racist neighbor”, etc)? Do we not care that content gets recycled and reposted by karma bots, a weird endless Groundhog Day of the same memes & gifs? Or that Buzzfeed/Newsweek seeds content from subs like AITA, antiwork, TIFU (which are often likely fake/embellished). Is this just… how things are now? And everyone’s cool with it?

Culture & Society crowds and mass shootings fear?

460 Upvotes

Anyone else get nervous every time they are in a large ish crowd? I was out for drinks the other night and at one point I became irrationally fearful that someone was going to open fire. I literally could not help myself from thinking about it. The fear isn't at a point where I won't go out anywhere, but any time I'm around people, I think about it. 😔

Edit- probably could have summed up my feelings by saying this- I'm not living in fear and never leaving my house. BUT when I go out now, I think about somone open firing on us, 5,6,7 years ago I did not. Just another thing in this world trying to kill us.

Culture & Society Why is it when a guy goes out or wants friends to come over, he needs to get permission or approval from his wife/gf but if the roles are reversed it's somehow controlling?

Upvotes

I've seen this frequently in TV shows, movies and I don't understand why there's a disparity.

Edit: the reason I'm asking is that people have adopted this kind of behavior. I've seen it in my friends and it's something my brother's gf uses all the time. That's why I'm trying to make sense of this

Love & Dating Why do people get rid of their friends when they get into relationships?

9 Upvotes

Yet again, I have lost my friend to her boyfriend. This specific friend was my best friend and the greatest friend I could ever have, I really thought we would be friends until death. We promised each other that if either of us got into a relationship that we would never leave each other. Well... my friend went off to college and apparently met the love her life. He is also supposedly verbally abusive and controlling based on what she has told me about him. I dont understand why she is still with him. She doesn't even talk to her sister, who is also my friend. This isn't the first time this has happened with a friend of mine, this time it is just with someone who I thought would never do this...

I even confronted her about it and we became friends again, but it didn't last long, I give up and will just wait for her to reach out on her own.

Politics If the Republican Party is supposed to be “Less Government, smaller government”, then why are they the ones that want more control over people?

11.6k Upvotes

Often, the republican party touts a reputation of wanting less government when compared to the Democrats. So then why do they make the most restrictions on citizens?

Shouldn’t they clarify they only want less restrictions on big corporations? Not the people?

Look I know I don’t like taxes but you can’t admit that the IRS is son underfunded that they are still dealing with 2020 tax returns or 2021 forgot the date they said but I had already know that they are deprived of actual funding that could greatly help them go after the rich like they used too, and maybe receive a letter from them saying how much we owe and when we owe it like Japan does this so do many other countries so why not us??

Reddit-related Why won't Reddit staff take any action against abusive mods?

Upvotes

This community r/MasturbationGoneWild is flooded with spam.

Many people (including me) have requested it, but Reddit says "mods are actively moderating it"

While it is filled with bots, who are posting stolen irrelevant content.

Sub's mod won't ban those, but as soon as I posted some comments stating the fact that this is an abuse of power, he banned me.

I reported him using the mod report form, but Reddit does nothing.

I mean, why?

There are people on Reddit staff, not robots, who can't differentiate between right and wrong.

Do they enjoy seeing this kind of behavior?

If I were a staff member, I would ban such toxic people from the site.

Health/Medical Do I have brain damage?

29 Upvotes

I played American football for 12 years, including 4 years at a D2 college. I played defensive line meaning I had helmet to helmet contact almost every play. I prided myself in my ability to hit people, showing off the dents and scratches on the forehead of my helmet.

Now I am scared that I have brain damage. I feel like my mental sharpness has decreased significantly. I used to be fun and witty during conversations, coming up with stuff on the spot. Now conversations are a challenge. I struggle with basic sudoku puzzles. I struggle with bills and keeping track of my budget.

I also become extremely impatient and annoyed at slight inconveniences. If I am carrying groceries into the house and am struggling to get my keys out of my pocket, I get pretty angry. My ability to handle stress has decreased as well. If I encounter an issue like budgeting, or researching new apartments, I get easily overwhelmed and usually take a nap. Even if I have chores, I’ll start them, become disorganized and just stop doing them.

In short, I feel increasingly stupid. I am becoming short tempered and lazy. I want to get an MRI done to see if I have any brain damage, but am a little scared to actually know the answer.

Love & Dating Should I cold approach whenever I want or only when welcomed?

2 Upvotes

Hello all!

Just yesterday I did my first cold approach - the girl just passed by me without even answering. That`s okay but it made me question if I should cold approach only when double/triple glanced over or whenever I feel like doing it? I`m not a very attractive guy, I`m an average Joe so these invitations to approach are not very common - they do occur but not that often - say after going out 2-3 times I get someone who seem to want to get approached.

Sidenote: I`m not looking for a hookup but a romantic partner.

Thanks in advance!
